This was my daughter's first book and she loved it - it makes me feel a little nostalgic seeing it on here now! Unlike other soft padded books, the "pages" on this one are bigger which allows little ones to turn the pages. For my daughter this has started a really positive relationship with books as she loves turning pages in board books now.
The textures in the book are great - there's a speaker, rustly sounds and mirrors which all aid sensory development.
There's a loop at the top so it's perfect for taking out and about or attaching to their high chair and I washed our one in the washing machine and it came up as good as new - which is really handy when it spends a great deal of time in a baby's mouth or if they decide to smear sweet potato all over it!
It's very durable and great for little hands that have no idea what a book is or how it should work! There's no risk of the pages getting ruined because they are made from lightly padded fabric and equally there's nothing to detach or injure your little one so they can play quite happily with it on their own.
I'd definitely recommend this as I think it starts children on a journey with books and subsequently literature and that can only be a good thing. Would make an ideal gift for a newborn if you're looking for something different from the norm.
